The Hastings Symphony Orchestra wiil celebrate the 250th birth of composer Ludwig von Beethoven with a performance featuring some of his most celebrated music at 3 p.m. Feb. 23 at the Masonic Center, 411 N. Hastings Ave.
Invited guest soloist Kaitlynn Schreiner, a junior voice major at Hastings College from Grand Island, will sing “Exultate jobilate” by Wolfgang Mozart.
“Kaitlynn has a beautiful voice that will undoubtedly propel her toward her career aspirations as an opera singer,” HSO conductor Byron Jensen said.
Also in the program are “Variations on a Theme by Haydn” by Johannes Brahms, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 in E-flat Major, also known as the”Eroica” Symphony.
“This last work is a monumental musical statement that had, and still has, a profound effect on subsequent generations of composers,” Jensen said. “It is a powerful and impressive piece of music.”
